the holy shit s'more cookie
{ that moment }

I love that moment, when I’m alone in my kitchen and I’ve been slaving away over a new creation and it’s finally reached it’s finished state. The dream is actualized. Usually I get an idea and it festers for weeks until I set aside the time to dive into whatever it may be that I’m obsessing about. I research, I write, I think, I marinade. When that moment finally comes that I sit down and take that first bite of my creativity manifesting itself into one glorious nugget, it’s all at once exciting, exhilarating, peaceful and satisfying. And I know I’ve stuck the landing when I say aloud, to no one in particular, ‘holy shit.’ This cookie, is that moment.

The base is a triple chocolate cookie that comes together quick and easy. With a little chill time, the dough is perfectly pliable and easily shaped into symmetrical, little spheres. I went jumbo on the marshmallows. Bigger is better here…I wanted it oozing out the sides. The final flourish is a quick roll in coarsely chopped graham crackers. I wanted this to taste just. Like. A s’more. Without the smelly fire-pit hair.

Happy Fourth!

Makes 18 S’more Sandwiches

INGREDIENTS

  • 8-ounces semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • ½ cup sunflower oil (or other light-flavored oil)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup bread flour
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 ½ cups dark chocolate chips
  • 18 jumbo marshmallows (OR 36 regular-sized marshmallows…my kids like the big, messy jumbo ones, but they don’t look as pretty. If you’re going for aesthetics, use two regular marshmallows per cookie…you’ll have more control over the final presentation.)
  • ½ cup coarsely ground graham crackers (about 4 whole graham crackers

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Melt the 8-ounces of chocolate + oil in the microwave (I usually do 1 minute on High, but microwaves are funky so keep an eye on things) in a large microwave-safe bowl or in a double boiler. Stir the chocolate to get rid of any chunks. Sometimes it will look chunky, but if you give it 20 or so stirs with a wooden spoon, you’ll get rid of all of the chunks without overheating (scalding) it.
  1. In a separate bowl, beat together 3 eggs.
  1. Whisk the beaten eggs into the chocolate mixture.
  1. Whisk in the vanilla extract, brown and granulated sugar. Set aside.
  1. In another bowl whisk together both flours, cocoa powder, baking powder and soda and salt.
  1. Pour the flour mixture into the chocolate mixture. Add the chopped chocolate chunks. Mix until just combined.
  1. Chill cookie dough for 30 minutes in the fridge.
  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
  1. Line your cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  1. Roll together 2 tablespoons of dough and allow at least two inches between the dough balls. Try to make them as spherical as possible and equal in size so they will pair up nicely when schmooshing the marshmallows in between them. Only put 9 cookie balls on a standard-size cookie sheet. They will spread a bit while baking.
  1. If you have the time, I highly recommend either freezing these dough balls for 10 minutes or placing them in the fridge for 20 minutes. This will keep cookie spread to a minimum. You know how I like girth in a cookie.
  1. Cook for 11 minutes. You want to slightly undercook these.
  1. Allow the cookies to cool on the sheet for 5-10 minutes, or until they come off easily.
  1. Turn on your oven broiler.
  1. Make sure you have everything ready for when the marshmallows come out because you will need to act quickly. This means have the graham crackers chopped and your cookies open face and ready to be paired up.
  1. Put the marshmallows on parchment-lined cookie sheets and char under the broiler (to the extent that you like your s’more marshmallow charred). I did my marshmallows for 1 minute, then flipped them and broiled for 1 minute more. Keep an eye on them!!! They will burn on a dime. When you take them out of the oven they smell like camping on the beach. Yay Fourth.
  1. As soon as you pull the marshmallows out of the oven, start shoving them between two cookies and roll the sides of the cookie sandwich in your graham cracker crumbs. Let me just tell you, that this is an imperfect process. Not all of the sides of the marshmallow will be wet enough to hold the crumbs so there will be some bald spots. I’m ok with that. One other tip: when you are sandwiching the marshmallows between the cookies, twist the cookies as you press down. This will force the marshmallow to fill the inside of the cookie instead of all overflowing out. They will overflow a bit, but this technique helps to evenly distribute the oozy marshmallow. One final note,  some may feel like the marshmallows aren’t adhering to the cookies…just smash them together, roll in the crumbs and move on. They just need to settle in and get to know one another. Great partnerships don’t happen in seconds.
{ on my mind }
  • Fourth of July parades, cool cocktails, hot dogs, sparklers and hanging with my family. That’s about it. #IAMBUBBY is considering not coming to the Fourth and I’m devastated. These cookies are helping.
  • Hope you have a wonderful + safe holiday. I’ll be sending you good cheer. xx
